Break out the tuxedoes! A celebrity wedding celebration is in order. Engaged to one of Hollywoodâ€™s most famous stars, Brad Pitt says his celebrity wedding to Angelina Jolie is coming soon, as reported in People. At Monday nightâ€™s premiere of his new film Killing Them Softly in New York, Pitt, 48, stated “I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come.” The famous couple has been together for seven years and celebrated a celebrityÂ engagement this past spring. Even though Pitt and Jolie, 37, raise their six children together, Pitt still believes the wedding will be significant to their family. “I am surprised how much [marriage] meant to me once you had that.”
Like famous couple Pitt and Jolie are sure to do at their celebrity wedding, what are some ways to involve children in the celebration?
Regardless of your childrenâ€™s ages, it is never a bad idea to include them in your wedding. A wedding is a ceremony of unity, which definitely includes everyone in your immediate family. To help your wedding be a success, here are three ideas how to include your children:
1. Ring bearer or flower girl: When your children are very young, consider sticking to the traditional roles of ring bearer or flower girl. They’ll love these fun roles!Â Plus, it won’tÂ give your little ones too much to handle.
2. Escort: Should the children be teenagers or older, they may want a more significant role in the ceremony. Why notÂ have them escort you down the aisle? By escorting you, they are symbolically giving you and your fiancĂ© their blessing.
3. Family vows: Including family vows in the wedding ceremony is a great way to publicly solidify the family as a whole. After exchanging marriage vows, you and your partner can each exchange family vows with the children, promising to love and care for them. You can also give the children a ring as a token.
